Nespresso Water Filters – Jumaytepeque, Santa Rosa

Habitat Guatemala, in coordination with Nespresso, EFICO Foundation and FEDECOCAGUA, delivered 35 water filters and an educational workshop to the coffee cooperative La Nueva Era in the community of Jumaytepeque, Nueva Santa Rosa, Santa Rosa. 

The goal of this partnership is to improve the quality of life of several families dedicated to growing and harvesting coffee, through the implementation of water filters, in order to provide them with safe drinking water.
